How to prolong the service life of electric hoist

In industrial production, electric hoists are often used lifting machinery. There are many tricks to make this tool more stable and durable. Let’s take a look.

First we need to do the installation work.

Choose a suitable environment: The environment where the electric hoist is installed should be dry, well-ventilated, and free from moisture and corrosive gases.
Secure installation: Make sure the hoist is installed on a solid structure to avoid vibration and shaking.

Ensure correct use

Before using the electric hoist, you should read the operating instructions carefully and operate it strictly in accordance with the operating instructions.
When using the electric hoist, pay attention to the following matters:
The rated load should not exceed the rated lifting capacity of the electric hoist.
The center of gravity of the hook should be kept on the center line of the hook as much as possible.
When lifting, lift and lower slowly to avoid sudden starting or braking.
When lifting heavy objects, pay attention to the surrounding environment to avoid collision or damage to other objects.
After work, the electric hoist should be parked in a dry and ventilated place.

Therefore, we need to ensure that operators are professionally trained and familiar with the operating procedures and maintenance methods of electric hoists.

Regular maintenance

Lubrication: Regularly add lubricating oil to the moving parts of the electric hoist to reduce friction and wear.
Check cables and wires: Regularly check cables and wires to ensure that they are not damaged or aged.
Cleaning: Keep the surface of the hoist clean to prevent dust and debris from entering the interior.

Regular inspection

Daily inspection: Perform daily inspections before and after operation to check whether all components are operating normally.
Regular maintenance: Perform comprehensive maintenance at regular intervals to check key components such as motors, reducers, and brakes.

Timely repair

Repair promptly if problems are found: Once the electric hoist is found to be abnormal, such as abnormal noise, overheating, abnormal operation, etc., it should be stopped immediately for inspection and repair.
Use original parts: Try to use original parts during repair to ensure quality and compatibility.

Although the quality of the electric hoist itself is very important for its service life, if the electric hoist is used properly on a daily basis, its service life can be extended.
